Hellenic Ball Hockey Association (HBHA)

Greece Ball Hockey Profile:

The HBHA is extremely proud to announce that it will be sending a women's team to the upcoming world ball hockey championships in St . Johns Newfoundland. At first the HBHA was indecisive whether their would be any interest to put a team forward. The harsh economic conditions in Greece have made it very hard for those girls to attend a tournament in Canada. However over the past few months many woman have shown interest. The hard work from HBHA members John Kontitsis, Alkie Zisidis, George Vouloumanos and Jim Papastergiou has produced results. Over 16 girls have now confirmed their presence./p>

"We are very anxious for St.John's, this will be our best team ever. A mix of youth and some veterans will pave the way for growth within the woman's game and spark some serious interest going forward"

Jim Papastergiou will be leading the charge behind the bench. "He brings an impressive ball hockey resume that will propel the women to their potential and their best result ever. We are very happy that he has accepted this challenge"

The woman's roster will be posted within the next few days.
